Quite an old phrase, as I understand it.  May have origins in the UK. 
Not definitive evidence of this...but the easypeasy.com domain is
registered in the UK.  Several other domains with "easypeasy" in them
are UK based.

It could be that phrase was picked up by many in the US due to its use
in the movie Shawshank Redemption by Brooks Hatlen (played by James
Whitmore).
